Join staff of the Department of Energy, Indigenized Energy Initiative (IEI), and Baker Tilly to discuss the various programs and possibilities created by the Inflation Reduction Act of 2022. This webinar will be today on October 13 from 3-5pm ET

Last month, the Inflation Reduction Act was signed by President Biden. Included in that bill are important changes for Indian Country. These changes make permanent the authorization for the Loan Programs Office (LPO) to offer direct loans to tribes for energy projects and increase the total amount available for loans from $2 billion to $20 billion.

This panel of specialists will discuss the key information tribal leaders and stakeholders need to understand, anticipate what tax changes may impact Tribes, and how to be best positioned to deal with those changes. Click here to register for this webinar.
